Chasing Windmills

It is sometime since our Exhibition which formed part of the Balsham Feast Day.  Alongside the maps were displayed old photographs and parish records, plus a special feature about the Balsham Boys who joined up in WWI.  There was a steady of stream of visitors throughout the day.

One lesson learnt when looking at our maps has been to take note of the land  sizes as they exchanged owners.  This came in particularly useful when tracing one of two windmills in Linton Road, mentioned in a document dated 12th October 1753, which could easily have been lost and forgotten!
